. >> president obama was in mexico city, but he talked about this gun battle. in fact, he kind of interrupted a question that was aimed at his counterpart in mexico. here's what president obama had to say. >> the last time we had major gun legislation, it took six, seven, eight tries. things happen somewhat slowly in washington. but this is just the first round. >> i want to bring in msnbc contributor dave weigel who was at that mccain town hall in tucson. dave, he was asked about the future of background checks, but i wonder, was john mccain a little less clear about where this goes next than the president was? >> he meandered a little bit. he was asked once if he would sit down with jeff blake and convince him, the arizona senator, he said he would take the advice. he didn't say he would convince him. he just said he'd think about it. he said there's a 50/50 chance of a version of the gun bill coming up. you find a lot of gun activists, a lot of them recent gun activists. i talked to people at the town hall who were shot up to three times by jared loughner in tucson. you talk to them, they
be trusted. i'm out there. i will talk obama for mdaa. i will talk obama for the patriot act for the visa courts and going after whistle belowers, for putting bradley manning in jail forever possibly possibly. so the he is peen espionage act has been used by president obama more. the last seven presidents combined used it less. >> i don't find it liberal but mainstream. but the robin hood tax of less than 1% on each transaction. >> half a percent would raise $180 billion minimum on wall street transactions. we would get the biggest share that have money would come to new york because it comes from new york. so we would have a federal law guys like the goldman sachs crew can't go to california. in europe they're going to pass it any day now. we could raise money and underwrite what goes on in this city. we have tons of people who are unemployed. 60% of black youth unemployed. >> john: it seems like a very mild form of austerity for those who could afford austerity. you said something bringing people from occupy wall street to a credico administration. what do you have in mind? >> i would u

. for beingso much here. let's talk about what we learned last week and president obama talking about the potential of a chemical weapons. evan mcmorris-santoro, where we add in this? why is the white house's stance significant? guest: there has been a lot of debate. the obama administration said a few months ago, they drew the proverbial red line about chemical weapons, the idea that of chemical weapons were used, they would cross the line and we would see engagement. that is what people read about that. there were reports that some chemical weapons may have been used. shortly thereafter, the white house was engaged on that and some observers felt they change the way the red line works. the white house says it was a systematic use. we're seeing a lot of discussion about persian towards what might be u.s. involvement. it's unfair to say that will happen or not. the white house is now talking about using chemical weapons and what it means for how the united states in gauges. host: the associated press has this headline -- obama's syrian caution. one of the conversations going on in con
talked about the decision, should be do health care or not? and obama'sed a sliders saying do not do health care. what the public wants is you to focus on the economy. unemployment is 10%. that's where you need put your efforts. don't want you being diverted. and what essentially persuaded obama for him to decide i'm doing health care anywhere was his legacy, providing for greatness, he needed health care, a goal that eluded presidents for a century. so, two members of his coalition presidency spent their terms locking horns they wouldn't be able to have the kind of achievements, establish the kind of record that would have important legacy for the ages. so, that's why i think it would work out. it's not only my fairly educate guess but we have other support. switzerland i like to use as an example. does it work anywhere else? in switzerland they're executive branch they call a federal council, hat seven department heads, and they possess equal decisionmaking authority. there's no first among equals. they really are truly equals. they rotate through the presidency for one year term a
? >> doing all right. your lead story talking about president obama's et putti house democrats in a tough spot. how is that helping? >> health care's become a problem in general for democrats right now if you think about it in two different areas. one, the budget that the president put forward does go after entitlement spending in a specific way which you talk about a lot on this show. for house democrats, they feel like running off the election that complicates their lives because they like to attack republicans for trying to reduce spending on entitlement programs. that's one box. there's a new poll out this morning by the kaiser foundation that shows that support for the obama health care law has dropped eight points. it's now at about 34%. and you saw in the debate last night where she was distancing herself from the obama health care law. i think there's a lot of democrats worried that the implementation has been very difficult, unpopular, particularly for small business owners and it could be very problematic for them in off-year elections, much like it was in 2010. >> i read a "wal
morning. it's finally friday. right now on "first look", president obama is in mexico talking syria. the first woman ever on the fbi's list of most wanted terrorists. so much for spring. parts of minnesota, wisconsin and wyoming are digging their way out of up to 15 inches of snow. >>> plus the boston marathon bombers originally targeted the 4th of july. and a warning to all drivers. be careful when approaching the pay tolls. >>> good morning. hundreds of residents are being ordered out
it works for those guys but not barack obama. that astounds me. but let's talk about the immigration idea what he has been saying on immigration. we know how it plays in congress. how is it playing in texas? >> um, as you know, as a lot of people know, one of rick santorum's problems besides the fact that he had foot-in-mouth disease in the last campaign, was that he was relatively soft from the point of view from the right, his own party on immigration. he was a relatively moderate on immigration. so was george bush. you look at john mccain, who has had a variety of positions over the years but effectively is a nuanced and informed position on immigration. you get these people along the border and many folks along the border, not everybody but many political folks along the border in states like texas understand that the immigration issue is much more difficult and nuanced. there are family connections. there are economic connections. so you have in most cases not in the case of cruz, but in the case of many of these candidates the greater recognition of the value of immigration. withexc
re-talking about? are we talking about the barack obama that his -- the administration raised the fee for citizenship application to get back down again? don't get me started. i can go low sides on this because these politicians, that's my point, have moved them play this game like checkers or chess when it suits their interest in suits their politics. it's not just john mccain. >> i will tell what barack obama we are talking about. we are talking about the president obama that just won a re-election with 71% of the latino vote and understands there is a dead and we will not let him off the puck. i think it's a president obama who no longer has realm and manual as a chief of staff telling him it's too politically costly for you to do this in your first term. i think the president barack obama who wants a legacy and understand that this can be a major point for his legacy. to the point where he is stepping back. the question you asked antonio, if president obama had done what he said he was going to do and luis knows this and crossed his own legislation on congress to say here is my bi
will give you michelle obama's arms. yes, indeed, this news. everywhere i went yesterday people were talking about did you hear what happened in boston. stunning arrest of three young men there. buddies of zark off -- dzhokhar tsarnaev. phillip has been covering this for the atlantic wire. he joins us on our news line this morning. good to talk to you. tell us, who were the three -- i'm not going to try to pronounce their names. what was their connection to the suspect? >> so the three additional people who were arrested yesterday were -- [ indiscernible ] >> bill: good for you. >> all of whom joined dzhokhar tsarnaev in 2011 at school, they started school at the same time. there were initial reports the three were roommates of tsarnaev although that is not the case. tsarnaev had a dorm room on campus and the other three lived off campus but they were all friends which is probably why they ended up getting into trouble. >> bill: two of them had already been under arrest, correct? for not attending classes? that's right? or violations. >> two citizens of kazakhstan had been detained at some p
a little extra support in other places. 71% of the hispanic vote. 71%. 73% voted for president obama. but the black vote was spectacular. he got 93% of the black vote. talk about a consensus, that is a consensus. the key was the black voter turnout. making just about 12% of the eligible voters in the country. they turned up 13% of the total votes from last year. for the first time ever, voters turn out at a higher rate than white voters overall last year. in fact, if they turned out at the same rate as they did back in 2004, governor romney would have actually won the election. it's not clear that the democratic party can repeat last year's performance. but one thing is clear. everything the republican party did was inadequate. they certainly demonstrated that the republican party has a lot of thinking to do. they better find some better thinkers if they are going to be competitive in the next. the president and his transportation secretary. apparently not a requisite for the job. the dramatic new report from the epa signals a dramatic shift in the debate of refracting. john roberts
those stories. we are talking to you about your view of president obama's second term. let's get to the catskills, new york, republican line. caller: i was going to comment on the middle east. wants to closee guantanamo bay is got backfire. what is going on in the middle east with a iran and israel, egypt, the moslem brotherhood syria, is turning into a tinderbox. israel will do something with iran soon and we will need that prison opened. host: troy, alabama, independent line. confused ande get they need to go back to school. with people'sicks minds the way you screen calls. if you look at what the president said yesterday, you look at article one of the constitution, section 7 -- it will explain to the job of the president and the congress. the congress is supposed to come up with devyn and the president is supposed to sign the bills. if the house and senate did their job, they are not doing it and they are embarrassing america. they don't know anything. all your callers don't know anything. you'll find the right answers if you read and you will see the truth. all these comment
options that the white house has been considering. president obama has been very careful in terms of not really talking about those options that are under consideration. tonight that changed and he said he is not at this point considering putting boots on the ground. using the term, he does not foresee putting boots on the ground in syria. the president has to some extent boxed him in. he said of course if syria uses chem weapons that would be a red line. the white house saying they believe chemical weapons were used but there are still too many questions about the origin of the weapons. president obama not ready to say how he is going to proceed when it comes to syria. so again we are still trying to get reaction to the israeli airstrike. >> andrea, you mentioned before john kerry is in moscow, on a trip specifically with the intent of trying to move forward diplomatically on presenting a u united front, to avoid further military escalation, to avoid a regional conflict. the chief on stek sell russia which is course with the assad regime, as well as iran. how does it change the n
with a new sugment preparing today call the agenda. we're goin to talking to a panel of progressive -- we're minutes away from president obama giving remarks at the 150 anniversary of the national academy of science and this comes as we're learning about a new push from house republicans that would require the national science administration to justify every grant handed out. today's panel, blake houn shell, editor of foreign policy magazine and timothy, what we can do about it. amanda i want to start with you. as we look at the fact that the house g.o.p. is looking for an angle to defund science, we know it's something that the president is trying to promote with his science agenda and where science is going, what is the house trying to do by asking for more due diligence on where the money is going. >> well they're saying that they want the projects -- this is being led by the house science committee chairman, lamar smith from texas. we wants to make sure that not only are these projects ground breaking and worthy of federal money they should be help -- what's concerning a lot of democr
as he has through the presidency between issues and crises not of his choice, obama seemed like a spectator as if he resigned himself to a reactive presidency. we have always talked about the thunder heads in congress. >> even when you were there. >> the exception. >> can i correct you? especially when i was there. there were more thunder heads per square inch. >> i covered congress before you, joe, it was even worse then. >> we are at a strange point where the president is not even six months into his second term and he already looks like a lame duck to many people who are top analyst. >> this is a familiar pattern sometimes in second terms but if you look back at six months and where barack obama thought he might be today, i hate to use this analogy but he is like my washington nationals. expectations are pretty high and barely keeping his head above water. i agree with sam's examples but the sequestration itself -- >> isn't it fascinating, al? i remember a lot of us talking to the president before and talking to president's people, they really believed that the re-election wo

[ doorbell rings ] >>> in 45 minutes, president obama is scheduled to leave for mexico city for a face-to-face meeting with mexico's newly elected president. he took office in december and in a potentially confrontational change from his predecessor, he's expected to give u.s. authorities less access in fighting the drug war and organized crime. of course, immigration is also on the agenda, important for 33 million u.s. residents of mexican origin, who have the potential to increase pressure on congress to act. joining me now, jose diaz. always good to see you. thank you very much for coming to us from mexico city. >> good to see you, chris. thank you very much. >> let's start with immigration. >> good to see you. immigration, one of the subjects that -- sorry. >> i was going to say that the new president is under some pressure to take a more public stand on immigration. why has he been hesitating? >> you know, i don't think he's been hesitating as much as he's been focused on other things. this is a
to come back to the issue of president bush's legacy but the security threats facing president obama as well. i was in dallas covering the dedication of the bush presidential library and i had a chance to catch up with former bri british prime minister tony blair to talk about his thoughts on the middle east, the bush legacy, and some of the big foreign policy tests now facing president obama. you are in this pivot point politically of being so closely associated with president clinton politically, the new labor party, at a time he was refashioning the democratic party. and yet your legacy will forever also be intwined with president bush and his response to the war on terror. it's a very interesting place in political history. >> there was a british prime minister when he was once asked what is the toughest thing about being prime minister he said events, dear boy, events. what happens is something comes of a game-changing nature or world-changing anywnature like and everything changes. i was very closely associated with president clinton and still have a good and strong relationshi

, but even president obama at the press conference this week acknowledges there are going to be some bumps. >> neil: bumps is an understatement. but i tell you something, you know when there's a problem, they talk about communication have to recommunicate. no two doctors understand this. i found that across the board. i talk to politicians. no two politicians can accurately describe the ramifications no two health insurance companies; that alone should tell you something, the behemoth disaster. >> the administration has not had a hope and change simple, message on health care, and another problem they have is we don't know how this law will play out. the administration doesn't know, and so if -- >> neil: nobody does. >> they make claims and are proven wrong, they're going to come back to haunt them as well. >> neil: a lot of you folks remember when we were in washington covering the debate over this, the passage of this, and every little nook and cranny. we said the numbers didn't add up and you can't provide this amount of benefits to everyone without seeing premiums soaring, which they d
to start with you. first let's talk about immigration hurdles. here is what president obama had to say about immigration reform while speaking in costa rica a short time ago. >> comprehensive immigration reform that i'm hopeful we can pass this year after 30 years can make an enormous difference in improving what is already a system that's better than it was. >> now, senate leaders here in the u.s. are aiming to win up to 70 votes for their comprehensive immigration bill. patricia, does that look like a real possibility here? >> well, you know, as with everything in washington, the devil is in the details, and one detail that cropped up this week was an amendment that's probably going to be introduced by senate democrats to extend same-sex couples' immigration benefits. it something like that is attached to the bill, marco rubio, who is leading the republican effort said, no, this is not even going to pass, it's not going to get his vote and it will not get a large majority. it really depends what that bill looks like coming out of the senate. based on the numbers in the senate, then w
're going to say in public. i imagine there's going to be a lot of people talking to the domestic audience. the stuff behind the scenes will be the interesting thing. mexico wants to pull back from the violence they're seeing. and what is president obama going to say -- you need to militarize your side of the border so i can deal with the border state politics? >> i would actually love to know what mexicans and the mexican audience thinks of the u.s. immigration reform. half of the immigrants to the united states come from mexico. so there's a stake for mexicans in immigration reform. the way that it's being discussed in the actual reform measures, what is the temperature as far as mexicans liking this, the mexican government being supportive of these efforts? and to what degree will the mexican president work hand in hand with president obama to help him on these border issues? >> this is an important issue for the mexicans, they don't want to enter into our domestic politics. one thing that they feel, we've seen huge resources poured into border security. huge increases in border patrol.
, but that will take of a bus chunk of this year. than i think you are hearing them talk about the mid terms. i think they realize now four-plus years into the obama presidency, honestly the way of system works, the way they respond to the incentives, if you want to do big things you either have to have 60 votes in the senate or filibuster reform, you don't need 60 votes for everything and you have to have the white house, so there's talk of a concerted effort now to win back the house in 2014. the problem is historically i don't see how they go and do that, but i do see a lot of energy being focused on that. >> if the democrats retake the house and held the senate, how much would that shape the president's last two years. >> significancely. look at the difference of what happened between 2009 and 2010, when they had not for all of that time, but for big chunks of that time they also have 60 votes in the senate the haz how you got the stimulus. you bakley only had three republicans willing to break ranks. that's how you got health care reform. they used this procedure called reconciliation, which can
searched on monday and tuesday of this week. during that search, reporters had a chance to talk to him. he said he had nothing to do with those ricin-laced letters that were sent to president obama and to members of congress. he said he was being framed, eventual essentially, by the first person arrested. here is what he had to say. >> i have nothing to do with those letters the person accused of sending those letters, her defense attorney or his defense attorney said -- steered them in my direction because i was probably an easy target. >> reporter: now we do know that dutschke is known to authorities, the mugshot we are showing you, craig is from a prior arrest. if convicted, he faces life in prison. these are very serious charges. white house officials tell me that president obama has been made aware of this arrest. at this point, they are not releasing any other reaction. this all started in the dates after the boston bombing. that is when these ricin-laced letters were intercepted at an offsite mail facility. so they never got close to president obama or to members of congress. obviou
